house correspondent, chuck todd, traveling with the president in madison, wisconsin and peter, we'll begin with you. what was it like on the road today? >> well, after a brief pause for prayer here, this is going to be a party-like atmosphere. they are trying to build on the momentum from last night. a country music band will be performing here and mitt romney will be joined by his running mate, paul ryan. let's give a sense of what it was like on the plane as we flew out here on the way out today. we saw mitt romney as loose and as relaxed as we have seen him all campaign. he was all smiles and laughter, joking with his advisers in the front cabin. at one point, the captain came on and said that the denver control tower has congratulated the governor. that of course was met by applause with all the folks sitting by the governor. a top adviser told me the campaign is in a really good mood, but they're going out of their way not to be gloating. one other story from last night, when top supporters and donors were in romney's hotel after the debate for dinner, senator rob portman

what all that money could buy. back here, with the race, chuck todd and andrea mitchell, and chuck, a new day after a big event. >> you know, absolutely, if it was not clear to you before it should be now. the two men trying for office, don't really like each other very much. barack obama and mitt romney clashed in what could have been the worst and most difficult debates of the modern era. president obama and mitt romney picked up today where they left off during their argumentative debate last night. >> mitt romney is trying to sell you a sketchy deal, we are not buying it. we know better. >> when it comes to his policies and his answers and his agenda, he is pretty much running on fumes. >> reporter: the only thing missing today, the finger pointing and glares th s domin last. >> i am happy to answer the question. >> the oil prediction is down -- >> have you looked at your pension? mr. president have you looked at your pension? >> you know i don't look at it, it is not as big as yours. >> you will get your chance in a moment, i'm still speaking. >> reporter: and at times, the moder

political director and chief white house correspondent chuck todd, also on the ground of the campus of hofstra university tonight. chuck, earlier today you said you could make an argument that we're now entering the most important single 36-hour period of this campaign thus far. give us a viewer's guide to tonight? >> well, i know that we can be accused of overhyping the moment. this is one of those times we're not overhyping. this is the moment. this is the time you can see this campaign shift. it is not in cement, if you will. let me tell you what the romney campaign thinks. they have huge confidence here. they are acting as if they're the front-runner. they believe they have nothing new to do. they plan on ignoring many of the attacks that the president is going to put out at them, they say, and instead try to have a conversation with people. as for the president, aides admit to me, he failed to answer the simple question that ted kennedy famously couldn't answer, which is, why do you want a second term? and what do you plan to do? and that's something they plan to do. the big targe

todd. so chuck, this is the field in front of us, john sununu said that colin powell endorsed the president because they're both black guys. another endorses president obama for president, by mistake, and romney talks about the piece of property, accepting help from stimulus money. beyond unforced errors, the romney's campaign is to put together the electoral and not the popular vote in the math, in the next ten days to push the victory. >> that is right the magic number, 270, here the states in yellow are the states we believe are toss-ups, the ones which we just don't know. they may lean one way or the other. let me take you through some scenarios where we think the battleground will narrow in the next week. if you talk to democrats they believe they're ahead in new hampshire. by the way, as you see me moving these states you will see the numbers above the president and above mitt romney change. so watch as i change them. they think they're a little bit ahead in wisconsin. but they also believe the democrats are a little ahead in ohio. they feel good, that gets the president to

house director, chuck todd, both in the washington bureau. chuck, let's begin with you, two new polls, different sets of numbers, what do the numbers tell you? >> reporter: look, when i dug into them, they both told us the same thing, there is a spike in the republican enthusiasm for romney, that is why you see the voters shifting towards romney. and it depends on how you wait to sample. and yes, one poll seems to be a little more republican than the gallup goal -- polls, there is more enthusiasm among likely republican voters than likely democratic voters. this has been a problem for the democrats for six months, and you're seeing more in this poll than the last debate. and the big moment will be joe biden, and paul ryan, you see them prepping in a way they have not done before. they have done a lot of mock debate sessions with joe biden. paul ryan has never been on this big a stage before. he has reviewed the sarah palin debate, watched joe biden's speeches to try to get a sense of joe biden. they will be seated. but i can tell you the republicans are a bit nervous about this, becau

house correspondent chuck todd also at the venue tonight. chuck, what's the task for both sides, for both men? >> reporter: well, i can tell you that both campaigns view it this way. the candidate that spends more time litigating the other guy's plans will feel as if they're winning. the campaign that feels like they're spending more time defending their own plans will feel like they're losing. i can tell you this. one lesson that president obama and his campaign believe they've taken from president bush in 2004 is don't take this first debate lightly. that's why they prepared so much. and don't assume he's just going to sit back and, quote, sit on his lead. he's going to be a little more aggressive tonight than maybe people realize. as for mitt romney, don't be surprised if he tries to get libya in the conversation. yes, it's an economy debate, but if he doesn't, aides tell me he's got a big libya foreign policy speech that he'd like to do in the next couple of dies, brian. >> chuck todd part of our team there. brings us to this next item. andrea mitchell is another part of our poli

john, you heard chuck todd saying this bounce is real, but what matters when we look at this truly is the battleground states. the same pew poll shows a dramatic midwest shift coupled with a michigan poll that shows the president's lead shrinking from ten to three points. and we look at this, a new pennsylvania poll from siena showing the president's lead thinking from 14 to 3 points. if this is happening in those states, john, what does that mean for ohio, for florida, for virginia? >> well, those certainly are the three big states, and i think you'll see the same type of numbers follow there. i said before the debate that i thought that that was the real start of the presidential campaign because a lot of people really didn't know what to believe about mitt romney. so, i'm not surprised at all about these numbers. what i think is real interesting is how many of these numbers the president is only at 45%. you know, his problem is, incumbents rarely get undecideds to turn their way towards the end, so i think these numbers are startling, important and certainly problematic for the

chief white house correspondent, chuck todd is with us from the site of tomorrow night's debate in danville, kentucky, and chuck, set the scene tonight, the advance buzz, this has been called an epic generational debate, of course it takes on more importance given the first debate at the top of the ticket. >> reporter: well, the college here, center college, they call it the thrill in deville, textbook the second time they hosted a debate. but you're right, there is a lot more pressure on joe biden to perform. and he is sort of walking this line. i talked to aides that say yes, he will be more aggressive than the question. that is a fact. but the question is, is he too aggressive? because we mentioned the generational gap, because a lot of the people view this as more as a visual. does this person look like he is ready to be president? and that is paul ryan's challenge, he is youthful, compared to joe biden. and he was not helped yesterday. mitt romney says he was not sure if paul ryan had had a debate, maybe back in high school. you don't want to bring up the phrase "high school"

. >>> our political director chuck todd is also part of our team in denver, tonight debuting our pre-debate polling numbers. chuck, how interesting that 34 states are voting, but this race is still on the move, and either a gaffe or a big moment at one of these debates could change the numbers further. >> reporter: look, it's absolutely true. and let's look at our new nbc/wall street journal poll. there are two numbers that matter more when judging whether a president wins re-election or not. it's his job approval rating and where people see the direction of the country. for the president right now, his job approval rating is at 49%. disapproval at 48. our pollsters tell us that 49 is in the re-elect zone. now, look at this, direction of the country. 40% say we're on the right track. that 40% is not a great number, but it's actually the highest number we've recorded in three and a half years. let's move to the head-to-head with mitt romney. this is where the race has tightened a bit. the president's number is steady at 49. mitt romney has picked up a couple in the last couple weeks,

political team, chuck todd, andrea mitchell, david gregory, you get to go first because you have the new poll numbers on where the race stands. >> reporter: i did, we debated the numbers, florida, ohio, virginia, the president had small leads in virginia and florida, a big lead in ohio. when we went back to the states to see if things had changed, well, we found small changes, not big ones. romney now leads by a point in virginia, in florida, still, a point lead for the president. and look at ohio, a six-point lead down from eight, but the president is still over 50%, there is a reason why, early voters. according to the numbers, one in five people in ohio cast a vote. and among those, the president has two thirds of the voters. that accounts for why he has a surprisingly big lead. there was not a lot of movement, post-debate one point, romney made leads on who to handle the economy in virginia and florida, something he has got to crack. >> all right, chuck todd at the venue, we'll talk to you later tonight. andrea mitchell, this format, questions coming from the moderator, in th
